"Cairns-based Som Tamang is no stranger to charity work, having founded Friends of Himalayan Children (FHC), which aims to halt child labour and slavery.

"On April 25, 2015, Mr Tamang lost his brother Amber in the magnitude 7.8 earthquake that killed almost 9,000 people.

"Shortly after the disaster he returned home to Batase, his family's remote mountain village north-east of Kathmandu, to find the children's hostel built by FHC had been reduced to rubble."

"A larger Ultra Trail event has been organised for the earthquake anniversary on April 25 and will become an annual event."
